After submiiting my application for ITIN to IRS, usually after how many days can I receive notice from them?

I am a non-us citizen. I'm required for an ITIN number for a certain transaction. Now, after submitting my documents to IRS , usually how long does it take before I can receive notice of acceptance or rejection from IRS.It's been 6 months now, since I submitted my application. Anybody help me please.

    Why did you submit the W-7? With a tax return, the process can be 10 weeks.

    For other situations (such as the sale of a property), the IRS will try to expedite the request.

    In order to get an ITIN a W-7 application form is submitted to the IRS along with a completed tax return on which the ITIN number is required. There is no legitimate reason for requesting an ITIN other than to use it on a tax return.

    After the application is submitted, it typically takes 2-3 months before the ITIN is issued. The tax return to which the W-7 is attached will typically be processed in 4-8 weeks.
